I'm one of those people who never has more than ten messages in my main work inbox. They get filed or deleted. I usually have no more than four things sitting on my TiVo.
Right now I have two screens worth of stuff on my TiVo and it is causing more guilt than a stack of books on the bedside table.
The Colbert Report (4 episodes) - even if I only watch the parts I like, that's still an hour of my life.
30 Rock (26) - I missed the first three seasons entirely, so I have to catch up.
Boardwalk Empire - Every week it's like a little hour long movie. This has led to:
Prohibition (3) - the PBS documentary, which I would watch if it had Steve Buscemi in it.
Penn & Teller Tell a Lie - Not loving this show. Bad production values? Half hour too long?
Breaking Bad (46, or every episode ever made) - I promised my brother I would watch this show, because it is set in his town, Albuquerque. Someday I will be laid up for a week and a can have a huge marathon. Until then, I have no interest.
Inside Job - Felt I need to see it for work.
Too Big to Fail - Felt I need to see it for work, tried, but the subtitles they use to identify everyone are in fine print.
You Don't Know Jack - I know this is going to bring up Mom deathbed memories, so it's out there for a day I feel like sobbing.
Stagecoach - I saw enough of this to know it's good, but not enough to watch it all.
What I should do is just delete it all. If it's in the basement and you haven't touched it for a year, donate it or pitch it. If it's in your emailbox, delete it or do it. It's time for Fall Cleaning, more purgative than Spring Cleaning.
It is also time to replace the fence, powerwash the house, get a Damn Mammogram, see if I have a bladder infection, plus this World Series is sucking up my life. No time to sit around and watch TV.
So, please let me know what I can purge from the TiVo, or what I should watch.
